I love UWM for the diversity and acceptance of all people. However, the less fortunate people that reside in the union or other places can put you in an uncomfortable place. Some places need massive upgrades to make it more presentable. There are so many different majors/minors available that it makes going here so easy. You'll find your niche right in time to get into your core classes and your advisor should help you get there quickly. If you have the right advisor - you have the right path. I've heard that some can be lazy, but Mary Moore is the best advisor I could have asked for in the business realm. She recommended a path of a double major with no extra classes. I couldn't be more happy!

This is my first semester at UWM and I honestly love it! I've been around the campus for the past three years because all of my friends have always gone here, so once I finally transferred, I felt right at home. I was a bit nervous at first, but all my professors are very helpful when I need them and I've had no worries thanks to them. Although the neighbor surrounding campus might seem a little sketchy at times, I never feel unsafe because of the campus and Milwaukee police patrolling all the time.
In my first year of college I've managed to make several new friends, start a student organization, contract with the United States Air Force, and regularly shadow a physician at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. I've determined what it is I'd like to do after college: serve in the Air Force as an Emergency Medical Specialist. Juggling school work with all my other activities and social life required a bit of adaptation through time management, but ultimately I feel that I've grown as an individual and am more capable to perform in my academics and other activities. If that can all be accomplished in just one year, I'm looking forward to seeing what I'll gain from my experiences over the next three!
